After Star book three in the Curse of the Beast Series by Ashley Lavering:

A Choice was Made
The Curse was Broken
Yet the Wolf Remains


Tayla’s life changed forever the day she became a werewolf in James’ pack (aka Beast). Now they must flee their Wyoming home to escape the increasing wolf hunts caused by Kyle. With James, her alpha and intended mate, she finds refuge in the remote area of Crouch, Idaho. 

Now that she's settled in to her new home with the man of her dreams by her side, Tayla wonders if she’s finally found some peace, but it doesn't take long for enemies to find her. They taunt her with secrets from James’ past, and revenge stalks the pack at every turn. 

When James is severely wounded with an unknown poison, it is up to Tayla and her best friend, Chel, to solve the mystery of the poison’s origin and find a cure. Will they be strong enough to handle the truth they discover and defeat their enemies? Or will time run out and werewolves die?

(A clean Young Adult Paranormal Romance)

After Star Except:

The house smelled like I’d just walked into a Tuscan Villa. Roasted tomatoes and pasta with… I inhaled again, sautéed portabella mushrooms, yum. My stomach rumbled. James bent over to get two plates heaped with yumminess out of the oven. The sight of him in his cream colored apron and those tight Wrangler jeans made it a toss-up as to what I was hungrier for, him or the pasta. He set the plates on the stove top, and I closed the distance between us. I threw my arms around his neck and kissed his throat. “I am so in love with you right now.”
His arms squeezed me closer. “Hmm, are you sure it isn’t the food talking?”
I laughed. “It might’ve added more to your charm tonight than usual.”
“That hungry, huh?” The silver streaks in his eyes conveyed his double meaning, leaving me at a loss for words as my stomach fluttered, and I blushed.
“Eww you guys. Get a room,” Erika said, pushing us playfully out of her way. “So does the teacher get any dinner? I worked hard, too, so stop ogling each other, and feed me.” She grinned.
We chuckled, and he handed her a plate. She sat at the table and dug in. My stomach twisted in hunger as I watched her. That blending-in-with-nature exercise was energy zapping work. I hadn’t been this hungry in a while.
James stroked my cheek. “You better eat, too. Sounds like progress was made, and it carved a hole in both of your stomachs.” The hopefulness in his voice made me glad I hadn’t failed today’s lesson.
“I did have a little success.” I teased him with my vagueness. Smiling sweetly at him, I grabbed my plate and joined Erika, who was smirking behind her glass of water.
“Out with it you two.” James sat next to us. “From the way you both are grinning, and the fact that you are hours late tells me something big happened.”
“Go ahead,” I said to Erika, who was bursting to share the news.
“Tayla, blended with a fir tree! She did such a great job, I had to coach her back to her human rhythm.” Erika plopped a forkful of pasta between her lips, her eyes glowing with pride.
James’ mouth fell open. “No?”
Erika’s smile grew, and she swallowed. “I am so glad you found her and brought her into the pack, James. I will finally have someone to teach all my secrets to.”
My lips stretched into a full blown smile. “James, did you hear that! We can train together. This is going to be fun!”
Erika threw James a sarcastic smile, and they both looked at me with amusement. “What? I am just excited.” Finally, I was good at something werewolf.
“We aren’t laughing at you, Tayla. I was just teasing James. You see he has talent, but nothing like the raw skill you possess to master it like I have,” Erika said.
“I have never fully melded my rhythm with anything. I am excellent at mimicking, but could never understand the depth Erika always spoke of. It is truly an amazing gift you have, Tayla.” He touched my knee and looked at me with such admiration that I blushed.
“Really, it was Erika. I couldn’t have done it without her guiding me. I’m not really even sure I can do it again.”
“Oh, she’ll do it again.” Erika winked at me. “She’s experienced the high and is now addicted. I don’t know, James, you might lose her to the forest.”
“Then I’ll just have to entertain her better.” He gave me a wicked grin.
“You’re in a mood,” I whispered, needing to fan my flushed cheeks and settle my fiery nerves.

It was meant to be fixed… her destiny back on track, how wrong could she be…
Just when Scarlett thought everything was back to normal, well as normal as life can be with a posse of Seraphoenix Angel Guardians looking out for you.  She wakes to find her life plunged into a whole new nightmare, where time itself has changed and she appears to be the only one aware of it.

In this new reality everything has altered, Leo and the Seraphoenix are missing.  Even her parents are different, as they turn against her when she is unexpectedly framed for things she didn't do.  To make matters worse she is unceremoniously shipped off to a supposed reform school for out of control teens in the wilds of ‘god-knows-where’ escorted by someone she recognises and really wished she didn’t.

Nothing is what it seems at the new school and the pupils are less than hospitable.  Scarlett finds herself in one deadly situation after another at the mercy of all those around her, and there is no-one she can trust with her secret.
Can Scarlett escape the menacing clutches of evil in this new reality?
Will Leo come to her rescue?

Excerpt:

Leo emerged from the shadows like a tanned Adonis, naked from the waist up, his black jeans slung low on his hips. She marvelled as the glimmering light highlighted his muscular body, his skin glowed with an opalescence which radiated magically as he neared her. His hair streaked with shimmering gold streaks as he climbed onto the bed, pulled her close and kissed her. His lips felt intensely hot as he followed the curve of her slender neck with his fingertips, she moaned in delight as the warm tingling sensation began to spread in delicious waves throughout her body, the epicentre of the ecstasy beginning at the heart of her tattoo. He cupped her face gently in his hands and whispered softly.
“I love you Phoenix, I love you…”  
“I love you too,” she whispered back as she pulled him closer.
He began to slowly untie the ribbons of her silver nightgown, one teasing bow at a time. She reciprocated, moving her body and letting the gown slip over her glistening shoulders.  Her fingers traced every perfect line of his exquisitely chiselled torso, exploring his smooth tanned skin. He pulled her nearer, his hands gliding along the curve of her waist, and around her back as he kissed more passionately than ever.
            He tugged lightly at the last bow on the low neckline, the ribbons slipped apart and her gown slid open. He gently laid her down on the sumptuous pillows and kissed her svelte stomach.  His lips sensually brushing her soft skin, her back arched and she moaned loudly as he kissed each glyph in turn.   The Mandala flared brightly and heat began to rage exponentially through her body as the tattoo exploded in a spiralling chain reaction of pleasure. She cried out in pleasure as the fiery desire engulfed her entirely. She looked up into Leo’s cool liquid silver eyes sprinkled with glittering specks twinkling like exploding stars, and fell drowning in their depths, she was breathing hard completely lost in the moment. 
Leo smiled at her, when suddenly his features began to fade, disappearing into a blurring whirl.

She cried out desperately. “Leo!”

“Enjoy a morbidly assortment of heartache, tears, and sadness …immediately felt connected … flow is beautiful … this book is what perfection really is!” - Toni L.

The world sundered and the demons arose, warring against those neither God nor Satan had wanted. Humanity ended. The Nephilim, Elioud, vampires, and witches inhabited the shards around the globe and rose in power, as the gates of Hell unleashed in the south. The world quickly lost technology and industry, as innovation and invention plummeted, and reverted to steam power and bio-fuel.

Korrigan trained most of her life as a courtesan, submitting to the will of men and caring for the other brothel inhabitants. Beyond the brothel walls of Hampshire House, lay a broken world torn deep into the final stages of Revelation. Beaten, used, and starved, all Korrigan understood were the rules her master enforced, and there was no escape, hope, or love for women in her situation. What she learned of the world around her wasn’t the reality.

Petre searched for the perfect woman to break his immortal curse.

Three hundred years ago, the young Baron witnessed his brother’s heinous crime. Petre’s family forced him to lie, thus spared his twin brother’s death and their family name. The warlock Hestin sought retribution, and his revenge transpired, hexing both brothers with immortality to atone for their sins. Cursed, the brothers roamed through life, slipping closer to their demonic sides, until he saw her.

Torn between her heart and revenge, Korrigan hatched a plan to liberate the brothels and tear down the walls, but could she put her pride and wrath aside to save the one she loves?

Excerpt

“Why are you wearing this … rag?” I asked and leaned away.
Amber eyes met mine. “You didn’t tell me what to wear.” Tell her? I cocked my head. “Masters choose what a woman can wear inside the household.”
I sighed and rubbed the back of my neck. She’d actually expected me to dictate what she could wear. What had Jules done to her mind? His words echoed, “Enjoy her, she was mine.”
“Let’s go,” I said, rising and pulling her up with me. I stormed back into her room, leading her straight into the closet. “I bought these for you.” My hand ran over the various drawers and wardrobes filled with new clothing in all the latest styles. “That thing you wore here, burn it. Hell, Korrigan, burn it all.” I turned to her again, but her walls reconstructed into a stonewalled facade. “You are not my whore,” I said, cupping her face. “I don’t want one of those.”
“What do you want?” she asked, and I smiled, dropping my head to hers. “I know only what I was trained.”
“Forget everything Jules taught you. All I want is you.” My hand smoothed over the ratty fabric to her heart. “The real you not this frozen puppet.”
She raised a brow and parted her soft lips. I wouldn’t last the night without the walls between us. Her touch, those lips, I craved them. How could I let her go, to even think of leaving her alone? I dragged myself away, and told her to dress in something nice. A minute longer, lost in those lips, and my plan would have been over.
“Why me?” she asked as I left the closet. “Petre?”
I smiled and replied, “Why not? Get dressed, gorgeous.”
